You can configure a "Custom notes URL" for host and services. A link to this notes URL appears in the host or service context menu in the GUI.

With the introduction of the Content Security Policy (which is configured in etc/apache/conf.d/security.conf), it is now not possible anymore to follow external links within the GUI frameset without changing the policy to allow links to the linked domain.

In such a case the browser console shows something like "Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource ...".

To make the "Custom notes" link work by default we now changed that link to open the link target in a new tab.
